Hairless Hugh

Shaved head for Peter Pan

Why Hugh, Why?

Hugh Jackman's new look, revealed via Instagram, caused quite the collective gasp at ELLE HQ.

The image shows the 45-year-old actor in a barber's chair with absolutely nada hair – yet, antagonistically, also with a fully bristly beard and moustache.

Accompanied by the caption, 'Blackbeard is born. #PAN', the image was instantly met with lamentations from the star's followers.

This transformation is in preparation for Jackman's role – as the notorious pirate – in upcoming Peter Pan remake, Pan.
